Single-Family Training and Education
I have always believed in Freddie Mac and our mission of providing liquidity, stability and affordability to all in the housing market. The success of that mission is, in part, due to the efficient and effective work performed by Freddie Mac servicers.
In my role as a trainer, it is my job to educate all Freddie Mac servicers on our guidelines so they can effectively service their loans and manage their portfolios. This includes making sure that servicers have all the tools and information they need to help borrowers, especially distressed borrowers. With the knowledge the servicers gain through training, we're able to reduce the number of delinquencies and foreclosures.
My job is very fulfilling because I know that I'm playing a role in reshaping a successful housing market. I firmly believe that the nation and the housing market will recover through the concerted efforts of everyone involved in the housing arena, and I'm proud to be a part of the solution.

To me, one of the most important things I do at Freddie Mac is to help homeowners stay in their homes. My team does this in a variety of ways, including our outreach efforts to housing industry professionals. We're educating housing counselors, realtors, builders, and community leaders by giving them the tools and resources necessary to help homeowners understand how to get help with their mortgage and maintain homeownership.
This is extremely important to me because this is the road to recovery. This is how we stabilize our neighborhoods, rebuild our communities and give back to our children and the future of our country. At the end of every day, I feel good knowing that I am making a positive difference for America's families – homeowners and homebuyers – and to the nation's recovery.

Diversity and Inclusion
What I value most about the culture at Freddie Mac is the openness and willingness to hear different ideas and perspectives that each of us brings to the organization.
Our leaders actively solicit our input and recognize that we're going to grow and create better products, solutions and services if we tap the collective feedback of all of our employees. I believe everyone at Freddie Mac innately understands and recognizes that addressing difficult, complex problems is most effectively solved through a diverse set of ideas.
It brings me much reward to be a part of this diverse culture and to see the end result of our collaboration.
Carolina — Housing Outreach
"It is so rewarding to know that my work is helping families stay in their homes and easing some of their financial concerns." Read More >>
In my job, I travel across the nation to meet face-to-face with borrowers who are struggling with their mortgage. I educate them on all available programs and options to help them retain their home.
I remember working with a distressed homeowner I met at a foreclosure prevention workshop. For over a year, he was having difficulty paying his mortgage and was losing faith that he could get help. By working together, and connecting him with an onsite underwriter, we were able to get him a trial loan modification. He couldn’t thank me enough and you could see the relief and pure happiness in his eyes.
Moments like this are so rewarding and make me truly passionate about what I do.
Lauren — Enterprise Risk Management
"I always had a personal goal to get my Master's degree, and Freddie Mac's commitment to work-life balance helped make this happen." Read More >>
Enterprise Risk Management
Ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to get my Master's degree. But, when I thought about what that meant – leaving work early, driving into a different city for class and group study sessions, and getting home late to my family – I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it happen.
Recently, Freddie Mac brought the Master's program on-site to help its employees in similar situations. By bringing the program on-site, I was able go to class right here at Freddie Mac and eliminate travel time to the University, allowing me to spend the necessary time on my degree, my job, and manage my home commitments. Management was very supportive of my goal and the responsibilities that were involved – from the Division lead to my direct manager.
I now have my Master's degree and have a more in-depth understanding of the business at Freddie Mac and am able to contribute more completely to my work.
